However, they surely realized that an animal was made to die so that their nakedness and shame could be covered. Thereafter, once out of the Garden of Eden and on their own, they had to continually shed the blood of animals to live. Each time they did so, they must certainly have remembered the first time they knew a living thing had to die so that they could live.
